The Last Time We Spoke....

I was a different person. 
We had just completed my sister's birthday weekend and I was looking forward to a Spring Break soon.  I am so embarrassed to say that it's been too long since I've had a minute taken the time to blog.  That's not the WHOLE truth, but I'll stick to it anyway....
Here's a few things that made the 

"We Just Made a MEMORY!"
#1.  The Saturday before Easter we got together with Big Daddy's side of the family for an Easter Egg hunt, games, food, etc.  I didn't really want to miss our church's Easter Egg Hunt, but I'll make sacrifices so that Big Daddy can see his family.  They're from the southwestern corner of Georgia, a town called Nicholls.  We rarely get to see them and some of the others live in the mountains of NC, so whenever we can all get can get together, I enjoy it.

#2.  While at the Easter Egg Hunt, they hid a metal tin that was shaped like an M&M.  It was the "PRIZE" egg and all the kids were told that if they found that egg, there would be a special prize for them.  Robbie found it and ended up with a GIANT Chocolate Easter Bunny (Thank God it was hollow!)
#3.  Our Easter Sunday choir cantata at church was AMAZING!  Many folks have said that it was the BEST one ever--such a wonderful thing--getting to see God's hand moving through the service and doing it through music too!

#4.  After church we ate at my house with my family for Easter---had Spaghetti and salads..LOL  then we packed up the van and headed to see our friends, Freddie and Kay Kay Combs in Tennessee.  While there we laughed, played, sang, ate, shopped, rested, etc.  It was WONDERFUL! 

There are SO many things I'm working on right now.
We only have 13 days of school left, counting today.
This is year #18 in my teaching career.  For the first 3 years I taught 4th grade---the next 4 years I taught 6th grade math and science----the next 8 years I taught 7th grade math and science---the past three years I've taught Life Skills (Home Ec.).
About two weeks ago I got a phone call from my principal because I had stayed at home with Robbie due to strep in May....who gets strep in May??!! 
She called to tell me that our CTE Dept. in our school system has decided to discontinue the Life Skills program in all middle schools in our school system.  That means 11 teachers got "the slip," myself included.  Fortunately for me I am certified in math and science and will hopefully be able to make a smooth transition back to the math/science classroom.  Please say a prayer that this will work out!!!
Even though I have been very worried about this, I know my God is able to take care of everything!

I promise to be back soon!  I have SO SO SO much to tell y'all!!!
Have a great Tuesday!!!

Glad to hear from you again! Sorry about things with your job. I always worry about my program being cut, but hopefully since we live in such a technological age, the powers that be will continue to see the value in business ed classes. Praying things work out for you, and looking forward to hearing more about what you've been up to!
